I did not know Larry well but I was running for State Rep out of Newton and Waltham in 1994. I ran into him at the Democratic state convention in Worcester and he wanted me to wear a Shannon O’Brien button inside. I said “Larry, June Malone is from Waltham and I think his brother is a delegate inside”. He smiled and said something line: “ okay, I get that” 10 years later he got my wife and I tickets to see Jimmy Buffet at Fenway. A life well lived!
